Industek continues to expand outside Quebec! In a recent column, we told you about a Canadian partnership with Lowe’s, a major hardware, building materials and renovation products chain.
In addition to Lowe’s, the young Victoriaville-based SME has also teamed up with another big-name Quebec flagship: Uni-Sélect. Industek management is delighted with this partnership.
Uni-Select is a leading North American distributor of automotive paint, industrial coatings and related accessories.
The Uni-Select network, which brings together more than 2,500 merchants, is considered the second largest player in the field in Canada. Its head office is located in Boucherville.
Industek’s distribution centers are located in Calgary and Edmonton. A vertical double press has been installed, designed to efficiently compact cardboard as well as plastic.
Uni-Select operates 15 distribution centers and over 400 stores across Canada, and employs over 5,200 people.
Named the IBV1320D, this press is ideal for high-volume distribution centers and shopping malls, since it can compact cardboard and plastic almost simultaneously, while optimizing energy use and thus reducing its environmental footprint.
Thanks to this press, Uni-Select contributes to the fight against climate change while reducing its waste management costs.
Industek intends to pursue its development outside Quebec, particularly in the United States. Several important partnerships could be announced in early 2024. Stay tuned!
